About Me


I believe everyone deserves a chance. Everyone deserves a
chance to defend himself or herself and explain what needs to be explained. I
have spent a lot of time overseas and have many friends and family from other
countries. When I describe the opportunity that Americans have to stand up for
themselves, to defend themselves and to challenge the State, my foreign friends
are always amazed and envious. Receiving those reactions, understanding the
uniqueness of our justice system, and appreciating those opportunities make me
proud to do what I do.


            After
graduating from Pepperdine University School of Law, I became an Assistant
Prosecutor in Somerset County, NJ. I handled criminal and juvenile prosecutions
of all natures from the investigation stages through trial. I argued numerous
cases in the Appellate Division and submitted briefs to the New Jersey Supreme Court.


            While
a law student I had several eye-opening experiences that helped me gain my
appreciation for the law and our justice system. I was a judicial intern to the
Honorable Katharine S. Hayden of the Federal District Court in Newark, NJ and I
was a legal intern at the Ministry of Justice of the State of Israel. These
places showed me people, cases and laws of various philosophies and different
backgrounds.


            I
gained my bachelors degree in History and Journalism & Mass Media from
Rutgers University, where I graduated the University with Honors and from my
majors with Highest Honors. I rowed varsity crew all four years.


            In immigration cases, criminal defense, and drunk driving my clients are often fighting uphill battles. The outcomes can never be guaranteed and all the pressure and
stress is on them because they stand to lose the most. For that reason I
hold nothing back. Each client is my most important client. Every client has my
cell phone number and can call me at anytime with questions. I have several
offices and try to accommodate clients by meeting as close to their homes or
businesses as possible, and on days and at times where they will not have to
miss work.


            I
have the legal knowledge, courtroom presence and relentless work ethic to
provide you with the representation you need in a personable manner so that
your experience with the legal system is as painless and as successful as
possible.
